Court: Coke should have warned of fizziness
Although the Court rejected the theory that the can was defective, it found that the company could be held liable for failing to warn consumers that "the beverage might exit the can at a high velocity upon opening." Expect to see a lot more language on your coke cans in the future.
"So have we finally hit the wall people? A grown ass woman does not know that a can of soda (carbonated water, syrup, some coloring and sweeteners of some kind) could possibly come shooting out. I am guessing she never drank soda in her life, never had seen one explode before and apparently beer doesn't fit in either. or champagne or any other beverage that uses any form of carbonation. She probably follows along the lines that flavored water is still water. No it is now a soft drink once you change it from water (to quote George Carlin).
Whew, so be prepared for more printing on the cans. And close your eyes when you open one apparently. She is stating that it burned her eyes some and gave her SLK and dry eyes. I am thinking very wet eyes personally that tingle :-)"
